^the first caution tape fell off, so they put more on and tied santa on too, since legally to have things sticking out from your truck you have to have a red flag on it. i remember that from amy doing drivers ed. but then he fell off, and we were sad for him.

kid-sitting and…jumping?

i babysit these adorable kids that i just love.

how rylee writes is just precious.  how she forms the letters and numbers is so cute.  but i bet i probably was like that when i was first learning.

and i don’t know if you can see it very well, but her E at the end of LOVE  is like 2 1/2 inches long.  i love it.

and of course, while they were napping, i went outside and took pictures of myself jumping.  one does that every time you babysit, right?

but this time i had a purpose.  my cousin mary’s birthday.

i love my face in this one.  jumping off playground equipment makes great photos, but i wanted to land on land- not shovels or slides.

i have another one that’s similar to this one, but i’m looking down.  i was jumping basically onto my camera, and didn’t really want to come down feet first on it.
